Birthday card for Karin

October is a very busy month when it comes to birthdays.
A few days ago it was Karin's birthday and this is the card that I created for her.
The beautiful pattern is a230 and is available from
 Ann's Paper Art webshop.
I decided to be a bit more adventurous this time and make my card a little different.
I stitched the pattern twice using Mettler Polysheen 630, 2250, 2550,6043.
The die is by Marianne design  LR0201 it has been around for quite a while and is well worth having.
The embossing has been inked with Tim Holtz- Distress ink, Tattered Rose, this one goes with so many things and is one of my favourites.
Jewels, stickers, punched butterfly and hobbydots have also been added to the front of the card.
On the inside of the card I have used a gorgeous image from one of the coloured art pads at Lili of the Valley..
 I have used Art pad #9 'Party and cakes", which I die cut with Spellbinders S5-135.
I also added some sparkle to the image
The backing card is from the Maja Design "Sofiiero" collection, I adore this cardstock and must buy some
The birthday wishes stamp is also from Lili of the Valley.
The ribbon is Anita's- everyday ribbon.

I enjoyed creating this birthday card and I hope that you like it to.

Thank-you for coming by and having a look.

 I would like to enter this card in this month challenge at
Lili of the Valley.......Anything Goes.
